I moved back to this district for 6th grade and I think this school is wonderful! Amazing teachers and good education. Very safe school and okay lunches. Of course there are some problems but not something that is a huge deal.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
I find mostly all of the teachers are effective and are hard working to make the students understand the lessons.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
The amount of homework is just right. There is math that has homework that is due the next day but for other subjects (depending on what the homework is) there are due dates that the students will have enough time to do and not be stressed out.

Develops character: Strongly agree

I feel like this school is wonderful and is full of amazing teachers and staffs. There is good education and some problems but nothing serious.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree

Not safe for anyone. Administration is the worst I've ever seen. Bullying is not only tolerated but supported with rewards and coddling even those who are violent. Not even the teachers are safe, let alone students. There is no teaching going on here, only behavior control by teachers who have no support from administration.

The only students who are rewarded are the unruly and violent ones. The good ones are ignored, and the unruly are empowered.

As a student I started late at WMS as a eighth grader, I just want to say you can get as many tardys without detention. I have had a terrible year at this school. I am switching schools again. A lot of kids that are like me have dropped out and skipped months of school without caring. They stopped caring because some of the teachers don't discipline enough.

Poor teaching, no followup with parents. Lots of bullying with no consequences. Very unhappy with this school, especially that they allow bullying.

We moved to this school district when my children were in 6th and 8th grades. They are receiving a high quality education and had to sprint to catch up from their previous district. There are lots of honors and advanced opportunities, tons of clubs and ways to be involved. The staff is very good as are the teachers. There are problems, but none that I haven't heard of or experienced in other schools. The key is staying involved and keeping the conversation open with your children. I would recommend this district highly.
